Do you know how to upload the video to YouTube? If so, do that, and then copy and paste the YouTube link here.

Excuse the sniffling and coughing. I’m recovering from influenza. This was my first real go at the table in a month.

By the way, I live on a small island in South Korea. No one plays 14.1 here, and I only started playing last year around October, so I have no one to learn from or get feedback. If anyone has the patience to watch my video, please leave advice, suggestions, things I could have done differently. I really wanted to make a hundred in January but got super sick and ended up in hospital. Super keen to learn anything that will improve my 14.1 game and help me knock in a century.

Thanks, and sure. Itís a Korean table by the brand Min. The corners are 4.25Ē. The cloth is also by Min, called Takini. They pretty much own the serious club market in Korea. As I switched to pool from snooker when I moved here, I canít compare them to any other table. I bought the table second hand, and compared to other Min tables in Korea, the pockets are noticeable tighter. I think Min tables are usually 4.5Ē, so Iíve no idea how mine ended up at 4.25Ē, but Iím glad they are. Oh, itís 9 foot, and 3 piece slate. 3 cushion and 4 ball are the main cuesports here, and the table was installed by carom table mechanics.

I'll give you a little feedback on your run and 14.1 game in general.
First off, the good things. You stay down really well on shots, little,if any body or head movement. Seem to hit breakshots well, at least the few in the video. Good speed and control (on breakshots) for the most part. Stroke is good, with a caveat. Is it good enough to run a hundred? Possibly. Is it good enough to consistently run big numbers? Probably not. I'll elaborate on that a little later.
Before going into ways to improve I'd ask you a question. Or actually I'll take a guess about something and you can confirm or deny it's validity. My observation is based on what I saw you doing in that run. I realize you may be a little rusty due to lack of play.

If you've been conducting regular practice sessions of 14.1 my guess is that during a normal session your high run falls somewhere in the 30-50 range. Might do it a couple times but in general that's an average session. If that's accurate then I can probably help you improve those numbers.
What do "you" think are the reasons you're stuck in that range? ( if you are) The reasons are different from player to player. Give me your ideas on that and if you're interested I'll try to help you.

Yup! That’s accurate.

Reasons for being stuck in that range: I rarely break down due to missing a pot. I break down on low runs due to concentration; I don’t seem to get serious about the run until I’ve cleared a few racks. Most of my higher runs break down soon after the break shot. You know, bad position on the break ball, only a few balls come out and I fail at getting a secondary break shot with the few balls available, or land on nothing at all. I know I can improve a lot on getting on the the break ball. Maybe I need to focus more on a good key ball. I think in general sometimes I don’t play specific enough position. Until October last year, my whole pool background was exclusively 9 ball, so I think I often just assume I”m going to land on a ball due to there being so many options as compared to rotation games.

Interested to hear feedback on my stroke. I come from a snooker background, and my fundamentals have deteriorated slightly since I started playing pool, but I feel like I have a pretty good cue action.

EDIT: It would be probably be really interesting to make a compilation video of a bunch of sequences leading to failed break shots, and get feedback on that.
